Mossley Hill Safari!

I had a good old mooch around my local (Mossley Hill/Greenbank) area today and found quite a few intresting plant species which are localy scarce, including; Hedge Woundwort, Wild Pea, Enchanters Nightshade, Purple Loostrife, Ramsons, Meadowsweet, Solomons Seal, and Hawks Beard.

Birdlife included a pair of Grey Wagtails which looked like they where in courtship again for a second brood in the Dell area near to the waterfall, and plenty of calling Nuthatches. Three Commas and a Small Tortershell on Penny Lane and a Fox near the bridge on Mossley Hill Drive also.
